“I’m trying to tell you it’s a purgatory”: support Ceebo!

Ceebo, the rapper and organiser who became active in anti-police brutality struggles after the LAPD killed his cousin Ezell Ford earlier this summer, has now been sentenced to 17 years in prison on the basis of a very dubious conviction. The explosive reaction to the killing of Mike Brown – which might yet be about to take off again, as people across the country prepare for the impending decision in the Darren Wilson grand jury case – has shown the extent of the anger that exists at police brutality, and using prison to break the spirit of organisers like Ceebo is an important part of the state’s plan to crush resistance. If we want to see sustainable movements that can make it through hard times, we owe it to ourselves not to let those targeted for state harrassment suffer alone.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
